Windows 7: Can I Has Fake Virtualization? (spoofing)

Can I Has Fake Virtualization? (spoofing)

Just wondering if there is anyway to make W7 report itself as if it were Vista since they are so similar.

There is a flash game I wanted to play but it denied me because its little check saw I wasn't running XP or Vista.

I have a sneaking suspicion if it just went ahead and let me try it might work.

Any way to make IE8 or another browser or W7 itself "spoof" what OS I'm using?
